An expert has hailed the government's boiler scrappage scheme as a "great initiative" that promoted cheap energy efficiency.
Andrew Leech, director of the National Home Improvement Council, said it is a shame that the scrappage scheme had to end because it was extremely successful and it has a lot of mileage.
He maintained that instead of being focused on the south-east, the scheme could still go a lot further and can spread right around the country, especially to the north, where many people could really do with help updating their heating systems in order to reduce bills from their energy suppliers.
"People need to change their boilers if they are more than 15 or 20 years old because they are old and decrepit," Mr Leech said.
"In this economic climate, they are not going to be very encouraged to do that if they have to pay the full whack. If there is a subsidy or a trade in, then I believe they will definitely continue to look at it."
According to the Energy Saving Trust, 125,000 boiler scrappage vouchers were claimed by March 26th this year.
